Rust Roguelike: Sil-R


Silevril (Sil-R) is a roguelike written in Rust inspired by Angband and its many variants. Sil-R is set in the First Age of Middle Earth and its goal is to steal a silmaril from Morgoth’s crown and escape with it. In its current form, the roguelike is little more than a tech demo for various kinds of map generation algorithms but I plan on fleshing it out once I get tired of implementing dungeon creation algorithms. I have been using a great ongoing tutorial series about developing a roguelike in Rust that you can find here.


The source code is available at my gitlab and there is an online web assembly version that should play in most browsers. The web version of Sil-R does not allow you to save the game currently because I save everything to a json file and I have no idea how to get that working in the browser.

If you experience any issues with the code and/or wish to post a suggestion or bugfix, feel free to open up an issue on the repo or tweet me at @thatzopoulos
